Message from the CEO

Governments, healthcare professionals, provider organisations and innovators have come together over the past three months to increase the capacity of Australia’s health sector to use digital technology and data to contain this virus.

Our success has provided governments the confidence to start easing restrictions and steer the country into the next stage.

The Australian Digital Health Agency launched the campaign ‘Don’t put your health on hold’ with interactive guides on how to get health services in a COVID world. We’ve released new online training for healthcare professionals on spotting and averting cyber security risks, and worked intensively with software organisations and professional peaks to fast track electronic prescriptions.

We look forward to continuing our work with you to support our health system at this critical time.
